This is a guide to authors using the FR for products. It gives some insight into what WotC focuses on in the Realms as of this time.

Interesting. Considering I was planning to use them in Anchorome, I don't see it as an issue, but...

Avariel. Avariel are winged elves and extremely small in number, coming from just one settlement in the world that is far to the north of the center of Faerūn (near Sossal). They should not be used in stories.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Overall this is mostly good advice particularly for some who may not be as familiar with the realms. I did also find the singling out of the Avariel interesting while completely excluding mention of other rare elven races of the realms such as Lythari. I have a few Avariel encounters planned for my campaign but that will be while the group is in Sossal.

Other than a few errors (Calendar of Harptos ... *cough*) it seems fundamentally sound. Never been a fan of real world naming conventions for Realms areas but I ignore that stuff for the most part.

The way I see it, another error is the omission of the multiple aeries of winged elves in the Moonshaes as mentioned in Dragon 376. It seems to me that if you're going to be that specific you should at least list all of the possible other settlements.
